Featured events

Past event
This year's Spending Review will not be the comprehensive, multi-year review we were originally promised, but will still contain a raft of important announcements. IFS researchers will present their initial analysis of the Chancellor's announcements at an online briefing the day after the Spending Review.
Past event
Self-employment in the UK has risen dramatically. At this event, we will discuss findings from a new report that explores the nature of the rise of self-employment, what it tells us about the state of our labour market, and how the Covid-19 crisis has affected the self-employed.
Upcoming event
On 31 December the Brexit transition period will come to an end and the UK will leave the EU single market and customs union. What does this mean for VAT and customs duties? What will change? Our expert panel will explore these and other questions in this highly topical debate.

Past events

Past event
Further and higher education providers face severe resource challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this event, IFS researchers and panellists Philip Augar and Mary Curnock Cook will analyse these challenges. This event coincides with the launch of our 2020 annual report on education spending in England, supported by the Nuffield Foundation.
Past event
The COVID-19 crisis has been a perfect financial storm for councils, pushing up spending and hitting local income streams. This event will explain how the COVID-19 crisis has been affecting local finances and economies, how councils have been responding, and key issues for the next few years as we seek to recover.
Past event
As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, senior researchers from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the National Institute of Economic and Social Research will join together to look at how Covid-19 has impacted the public finances, including what we can learn from comparisons with the fallout from the financial crisis and how uncertainty around the economy has affected public spending in the past.
Past event
A Spending Review is a difficult balancing act at the best of times, forcing Chancellors to make difficult choices between competing government departments and services, and trade off higher spending against the tax or borrowing needed to pay for it. This year's Spending Review is likely to be the most difficult to date. At this event, IFS researchers will look ahead to the upcoming Spending Review, and outline the options, opportunities and challenges facing the Chancellor.
Past event
A socially mobile country provides equal opportunities for everyone, across big cities and small towns, and regardless of whether your parents are rich or poor. This event will look at the state of mobility across England and explore policy options for any government committed to a levelling up agenda.
Past event
IFS, Discover Economics, and the Economics Observatory present Generation-COVID: a webinar for 15-17 year olds exploring what Covid-19 means for the future of the economy. What will be the impact of disruption to schools? Will the way we work change forever? Our panel of economists will answer your questions on Covid-19 and the economy.
Past event
The share of people staying on in education beyond the age of 18 has grown substantially in the UK since the 1980s. Yet until now, evidence on the effect of these qualifications on subsequent earnings has been limited. This event will present key findings from three pieces of research published in 2020 by the IFS on returns to education.
Past event
Each year early career economists at IFS deliver a day of public economics talks, aimed at A-level and undergraduate students who have an interest in economics or might want to pursue a career in public policy research. As part of this year’s Festival of Social Science, we will be live streaming a selection of lectures from the series.
Past event
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to dramatic changes in the delivery of routine health and social care in England. At this IFS/Nuffield Trust event, we will draw upon research from both organisations, survey data and official NHS statistics to examine the scale and nature of disruption in recent months and who has been most impacted.

Self-employment in the UK has risen dramatically. At this event, we will discuss findings from a new report that explores the nature of the rise of self-employment, what it tells us about the state of our labour market, and how the Covid-19 crisis has affected the self-employed.
